Earth Day has been on our mind since the beginning of April… we searched for a long time for a project that was really committed to helping communities. Finally we found The Canopy Project! This seemed like a perfect fit… not only were we contributing to clean air, but we were also helping small communities sustain themselves!
The Canopy Project plants trees that help communities – especially the world’s impoverished communities – sustain themselves and their local economies. Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities to achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air and help stave off the effects of climate change.
We decided to turn Earth Day into Earth Week. For the whole week we donated 10% of sales to The Canopy Project. We have some great repeat customer that really loved the idea! Some customer even took the time out of their day to email us and let us know how excited they were to be part of the project. This was almost as rewarding as actually donating to the project! Knowing that our own customers were truly excited to contribute to Earth Week and The Canopy Project!
At the end of the week we took 10% of all sales and donated that to The Canopy Project! Check out our facebook post to see how much we raised!!
